Another chapter in my story, where there is some success, and a couple of setbacks.
First, the good; another Mk7 (1990) picked up for under £3 and no shortage of 'biker' plasma gunners, which leaves me just a melta gun and sergeant short of a full squad (if you don't count the bikers' legs). I'm in no great rush, but it's funny how things fall into place when you start a little project like this. This is the squad in the (very) early stages: the five Mk6s and the Mk8, with the later Mk7, which might not make it into the squad, on the right:http://s1370.photobucket.com/user/gavbe ... z.jpg.html
Now the worry; a quick sort through the bits box reveals some shortages. I sorted out a power fist and plasma pistol for the combat squad leader, and enough bolt pistols for everyone else (less the bikers). I have arms in abundance and sufficient shoulder pads, but only five chainswords and no power swords at all. I could fill out with power axes and fists, but I'm not sure I want to. Even worse, I can only find five spare backpacks, which has really surprised me. I need to have a rifle through my other boxes, but this evening the project got a lot harder and potentially, if I have to source replacements off the internet, a lot more expensive. Anyone have any suggestions of UK based places to look that aren't too expensive?
